General description

Euclidean geometry studies configurations of points such as triangles and polygons and those properties of these
that are invariant under similarity transformations. Hyperbolic geometry is largely analogous to the Euclidean geometry, but a key feature now is invariance with respect to conformal automorphisms of the unit disk, Möbius transformations. Conformal geometry refers to generalization of these notions to subdomains of higher dimensional Euclidean spaces. These ideas are then applied to study familiar classes of maps such as bilipschitz maps and their generalizations, quasiconformal maps. The goal is to develop modern mapping theory in this framework. Some of the key tools, such as the extremal length of a curve family, are based on measure theory.

The course consists of weekly exercises in a group.
